Abortion is Ground Zero for the Democrat War on Women

by Steve MacDonald

New Hampshire Democrats are calling Republican efforts to remove funding for abortions from the state budget an attack on women’s health.  But if we’re being honest, abortion is ground zero for the Democrat war on women.

Nothing is more anti-woman than to deny a young girl her future. Abortion takes everything she would ever be, could ever be, and snuffs it out before she can take a breath, or feel the sunshine on her face.

    You mean Zygote? you have likely killed more cells scraping your knee.

    Abortion is 100% ground zero because for some reason republicans feel the need to push their religious agenda along side their political one and want eradicate it…again. This is settled law, move on people.

    Now the fact really is, in NH, zero public money goes to to abortions, that includes state and federal money. So this is a non issue.

      It is a baby. A new person inside that body that chose to do the actions that recreate new life. Every mother-to-be calls it a baby until they want an abortion. I’ve never seen a Hallmark card that says “Congratulations! You’re having a zygote!”

      • roger

        Except that some people don’t “chose to do those actions that recreated new life”

        Hallmark? Talk about a deflection.

        I’ll reiterate, how is a Libertarian blog Pro-life? Aren’t y’all supposed to be “less government the better people?

          We are a conservitarian site – Conservative with libertarian leanings. We are also Pro-Life – the most important Right. Which, as it says in the Declaration, that governments are instituted to protect those Rights.

          And many LIbertarians (last time I looked, it’s a 50-50 split on pro-abort vs pro-Life.

          No, not all, Roger but that’s usually because of a crime. The vast majority of times two people consent to performing an action that can result in a baby being formed (and absent abortion) and born.

          SB is right – nobody goes around saying “I’M HAVING A ZYGOTE! I’M HAVING A FETUS!”. Using the latin terms that simply describe the level of development of a new and separate Life is the hiding place of ruffians and scoundrels.

          OK Roger, then LESS GOVT also means spending a lot less. If abortion is so needed, let PP go and canvas the general public for funds instead of beseeching a very few politicians in raiding that Public Treasure.

          Shouldn’t need all THAT much to raise, as PP keeps telling us it’s just a small part of their business.

          See? Easy-peazy! Those that believe in it support it, government spends less and intrudes less into Civil Society. ANd those of us who believe that Abortion is just a word for “Killing babies” don’t have to support it.

          “I’ll reiterate, how is a Libertarian blog Pro-life?”

          So Government is responsible for Life, then? Who knew! Sorry dude, stop conflating the two.

          The percentage that are true rape versus “change of heart after the deed is done” is insignificant in the grand scheme of who gets abortions. I am all for the “morning after” pill for those cases. And yes I am all for birth control but not taxpayer funded.

      If no public money goes to abortions, then removing it from state and federal budgets is really just a matter of clearing out useless clutter from the books and no one should be unhappy about that. Especially if you don’t want the govt in your bed/legs/womb because the only way to keep it out is to not demand it comes in by funding anything that goes on down there.

      • roger

        I should be that easy….. but republican’s want to defund Planned Parenthood entirely! PP does offer services other than abortion services and they are very valuable.

        I don’t care that the government is in anyone’s womb, I am simply pointing out this author’s hypocrisy in being “pro life”, when he should be demanding a hands off approach all together.

        I think providing birth control and basic health services to women is worth funding and provides a valuable service to the public.

        But don’t sit and here say that you are a ‘libertarian” auhtor and then demand we defund PP which is nothing more than pushing a Religious agenda, not a Liberation one.

        • granitegrok

          But yet, when the head of PP was asked “well, why not just spin off the parts that do abortions to be their own entity and then the remainder that do just “womens’ health”, she went ballistic and so did other pro-Abortion folks.

          Money is fungible – if abortion TRULY just a little part of their overall business (even tho they do between 300-500K abortions a year), they simply would have said yes. But because money is fungible, and they said NO!, well, the jig is up.

          • roger

            Great so you cherry pick ideals from two different ideals, how original.

            Why do you care public money does not fund abortions in New Hampshire. End of story., What is the solution to this “problem” you are looking for?

        • granitegrok

          “he should be demanding a hands off approach all together.”

          “Hands off” would be to not fund it at all. Right? THat’s totally unfunding it – and we’d all be happy campers!

          And it is certainly not a “Liberation” moment for the baby that is getting killed.

          • roger

            You are conflating two ideals here to meet your agenda.

        • sb

          And I think people should be responsible for their own services they wish to partake of. Taxpayers should not pay for this kind of thing. I am not saying people should not have relations but it is a choice and those same people should be ready to pay up to prevent unwanted consequences.

          • roger

            That is perfectly fine viewpoint and I don’t disagree. The unfortunate reality is I don’t think that is ever going to happen nor is it actually possible.

    • granitegrok

      Wrong.

      What is “settled law’ is that SCOTUS said it was legal. That just means it can happen. It does NOT mean that government has to fund it. Period.

      Keep that out of MY life as well. Once govt started to fund it as the result of a POLITICAL decision and action, government MADE it part of my life forcing me to pay for it.

        Public money does not fund abortions in NH.

        Public money does not fund abortions in NH.

        Public money does not fund abortions in NH.

        Public money does not fund abortions in NH.

        Why is this so hard to understand?.
